A short photo collection from Homeland Farm

       Howdy from Homeland Farm. Tonight, I thought I would share a few photos from us here on the farm. I thought it would be a good way to introduce you to the animals and people that call this place home. We have 5 horses, 4 cats, 2 dogs, and approximately 50 laying hens. Plus, Mr and Mrs Guinea, our pair of guinea fowl. We love Mr and Mrs Guinea. They answer me when I call them and come running for food. They actually listen better then my children, come to think of it.
       This is a picture of some of the turkeys we raised last year, in their new Turkey Hotel. The animals live pretty well here at Homeland Farm. We raised Giant White and Bourbon Red turkeys.

This is a giant black turkey...no, no..wait..This is actually my oldest son Cameron, chilling with the birds after we moved them into their new grassy pen.

This is our Thoroughbred Amira, and a pal last winter. We got way too many "free" roosters in our pullet order from the hatchery, so we had to separate the extra roosters from the 3 we decided to keep, until we found a home for them. This guy found a nice warm roost for the nights. Amira is so good, she didn't even mind when he climbed up and sat on her neck.
The girls had a very busy spring. We were getting 10-12 dozen a day from all our hens. We unfortunately had alot of trouble with the foxes this year. I will tell that story at a later date...It was an exciting time at Homeland Farm.

Farmer Daigle needed new haying equipment very badly. Nothing makes a fella happy like a new tractor!

Look closely at this picture...The cat is on the dog bed, and the dogs are on the glider, and the humans are standing. " And that," says Spud the wonder dog, "is how it should be."
That's Lacy the toy poodle sitting with him and Sipsy Sue, the "Katrina" cat in the background.

      Then, this would be Muffinhead, the black cat, and her pal Stewie. Muffinhead, aka Muffinbrains, Muffinezer Scrooge, was found by Brogan as a kitten on the side of the road. Stewie, aka Stewbeef, Beefer, Beefaroni, Baby Beef, Justin Beefer, was a rescue cat. Neither have missed many meals, and both have ALOT of personality. Just ask them...they will tell you.
      So, here are a few more members of the family. I have many animal stories I can share. They give us alot of joy, headaches, and from time to time, heartbreak as well. That is all part of Life here at Homeland Farm.
